Djed Spence vowed to continue his development after committing to a new three-and-a-half year contract with Boro on Monday afternoon.
It's been a remarkable rise for the 19-year-old, who made his Championship debut in December, scored his first senior goal against Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day, and was then named the EFL's Young Player of the Month.
But the defender says he won't be resting on his laurels after this latest good news story.
"I want to do well for the club, learn my craft and just keep getting better and better," he said.
"The manager is the same, he is always on my back because he wants the best for me and the best version of me.
"There's a lot of good players here to look up to and gel around.
"I'm over the moon to sign the new contract, it's a good feeling and i want to keep it going."
